The micro-exhibition I wish to see where the winds meet is the story of a publication becoming an installation. For emerging British photographer Christian Bragg, Tumuult Studio, Berlin, and Atelier Helio’g, Paris, created two publications. By exhibiting these, Bragg’s work is shown in public for the first time.
Winds witnesses the outcome of Bragg’s personal journey – a journey driven by a fragile quest for revelation and the search for oneself. His analogue black and white photography reveals contrasts going beyond those of dark and light, combining transformation and tranquility, irony and sincerity, sound and silence. With Winds, the photographer tells a personal story of memories, composing what he defines a “novel written with images”, whilst the viewer imagines his own through a personal and intimate experience.
The artist book, produced with exclusive heliogravure prints by Fanny Boucher is a rare collectors’ item — shown here in a singular scenography in which pendulous booklets rise in the wind. In dialogue, a publication by Tumuult revisits Bragg’s very same work in an experimental way, putting forward a certain idea of books, returning to its very origins: a curated object.
Meet the photographer and the helioengraver at the Vernissage on 25 February 2016 at 7:00 pm.
Founded in 2014 by Antonin Pons Braley and Lena Gudd, Tumuult is a Berlin-based independent art & research lab at the crossroads of art, anthropology and architecture. Beyond Gudd’s and Pons Braley’s studies on contemporary societies in northern regions, Tumuult explores the relationship between man and his environment with exhibitions and talk rounds. In parallel, Tumuult Studio is commissioned by museums, researchers or artists to accompany editorial and curatorial projects.
